5 Things You Need to Know Today: March 12
Attend a planning board meeting and remember to submit your applications for the Elementary School Criteria Work Group.
1. *This event has been postponed to a later date. We will announce the new date as soon as it's available.* See the film Two Million Minutes tonight at 7 in the High School Auditorium. This groundbreaking, controversial documentary film takes an in-depth look at how students in the United States allocate their high school years (approximately four years or two million minutes) compared with India and China. The film forms a picture of the various levels of global education and addresses the implications of these differences on the 21st century global economy. There is no admission charge, but please make reservations with firstname.lastname@example.org as space is limited.
2. Tonight the Planning Board will be having a public forum on the new wastewater treatment plant that is going to be built as part of the Legacy Farms project in East Hopkinton.
